For the four little boys who were scared and lost in Bastrop County, Ruger will always be their four-legged hero. As the search stretched for hours into a cold winter night, local law enforcement authorities turned to Texas Game Wardens. Game Warden Christy Vales responded with her canine partner, Ruger. After the boys had been lost for more than seven hours, Ruger nosed his way to the shivering and frightened youngsters, who were then safely reunited with their parents.
Ruger and his fellow K-9s work in all hours, in all seasons, and don’t stop until the job is done! In the brutal heat of a Texas summer, a search and rescue mission can become a dangerous operation.
